Well I usually love to stay at Accor hotels but this one really does not do it for me and I would say you might be better of looking else were. For me to say that is a shock. Rooms have been upgraded as this place was a motel so you can image the lay out. The rooms are small... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Service was swift and friendly but more like a motel. No one to help with the luggage or show us to our room. Our room was considered superior by the hotel but only because it had been renovated. It was small compared to other places we stayed in Tasmania.But this is in... More

Refurbished room overlooking the park, clean and tidy with good facilities but was aimed more at the single business traveler I'd recommend for a couple visiting the area, you can walk into town in minutes.

The first room I was given was not great at all, it was on the bottom floor and had a door that basically went out to the carpark (clearly a Motel that has been refurbished into a Hotel). After discussing this with the staff they very kindly moved me to a room upstairs which overlooked the park - it was... More

Booked this hotel as my "usual" was fully booked. I travel to Launceston regularly for work. I am thinking about changing hotels! The location is awesome; and the renovated rooms are superb!

The Mercure Launceston is a good, very comfortable and thoroughly pleasant hotel looking out across the City Park. Staff worked over-time to make our two-day stay as enjoyable as possible, from a phone call a day before to check when we were arriving to whether we had any preferences. The room we had was very recently refurbished, had been done... More

My partner chose and booked the Mercure for its location, as well as its apparent recent refurbishment. After arriving (on the Friday for a two-night stay), the cheery receptionist checked us into a room on level one, city end away from the street.

I fell into the trap of booking a room that was cheaper than the rest. I soon found out why. The traffic noise was unbearable!
